Investing in England

Hello everyone,

During your expatriation in England, you might have been made aware of interesting investment schemes (local or international). Whether one wants to make money grow, protect oneself or prepare for retirement, investment is always an attractive option. It is, however, never free of risk. Would you, therefore, like to share some practical information for other expats and expats to be?

Is the English economy open to foreign investment? Do local authorities encourage investment (through formalities, tax etc.)?

What are the promising sectors to invest and do business in England?

Who do you turn to for information before investing your money? (organisation, professional, lawyer, consultant)

According to the sectors of activity and the projects, what budget should be foreseen for an investment in England?

What do you think are the pitfalls to avoid and what advice would you give someone who wants to invest?

Thanks in advance for your feedback,
Diksha

Hi Diksha,

Investing in UK require expertise and someone to guide you. If you know in which sector you want to invest then you need to work on it but it require more than that like me I have been growing in this field for the past 10 years. I would suggest it depends how you want to do it like if you have enough resources but you can be in touch with me I am in London and then I can guide you through this

In the UK interest rates are so pathetically low that it is almost like letting your money sit in the bank earning next to nothing so you need to see what special investments you can find either with banks or elsewhere. A friend of mine invested in government bonds and I remember him telling me that he lost everything. He is a smart guy with a high level government job and lots of qualifications, but I still call him plonker despite him having a PhD.

Long term property investment is always good since the rental income makes for great income when pensions are being delayed by years and are often less than you might expect. Investing in private pensions is also good as it may actually guarantee you getting that pension when you reach 65 years of age instead of later.

In 1986 I invested £2,000 in a Section 32 Buyout and then basically forgot about it. From that small investment which is basically a private pension, I will be getting £320 per month in a couple of years. It's not a lot but it all adds up. That's in addition to my state pension, rental incomes and business earnings.

So as far as investing for your later years, it is always worth doing it in several different sectors.
